The man who shot dead two women at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, on Friday before killing himself was a far-right extremist and self-proclaimed misogynist who railed against women, black people, and immigrants in a series of online videos and songs.

Scott Beierle, 40, was named by Tallahassee Police as the gunman who opened fire inside the Hot Yoga Tallahassee studio, killing two and injuring four other women and a man. In one video called “Plight of the Adolescent Male,” he named Elliot Rodger, who killed six people and injured 14 and is often seen as a hero for so-called “incels,” or those who consider themselves “involuntarily celibate.”

In “American Wigger,” he sang that he would “blow off” the head of a women he referred to using the c-word. The song “Locked in my Basement” featured an extremely disturbing tale of Beierle holding a woman prisoner in his basement using chains so he could rape her. Other songs were entitled “Who Let The Fags Out?” and “Bring Your Fatwa.

Beierle’s YouTube channel was filled with sexist, racist anti-gay rants in which he identified himself as a “misogynist” and expressed sympathy for “involuntary celibates.”

In another video, “Illegal Immigration and the Unaffordable Care Act,” he advocated for further militarizing the U.S.-Mexico border and accuses the Affordable Care Act of “susidizing sluttiness” by offering coverage for birth control.
